Which Container?

The garden is an integral part of the home. If your home is complete with a garden, it will never truly look good if you have forsaken your garden. Keeping it in shape is not a problem even if you have only a few hours a week to spare for gardening.

It might seem unbelievable but if you have planted flowering plants or any other plant which needs little care, you can maintain a perfect garden. Your garden will also look good if you chose to design it with great quality garden pieces like birdbaths and whatnot.

But one thing that you should consider where gardening is concerned is the container for your plants. There are different types of containers like terracotta pots or terranova. There are also glazed potteries which are usually pricey. There are also cast iron pots and even fiberglass ones.

If you are having a hard time picking out the right container for your plants, go on right ahead to Rental Decorating and read their article about these containers.

A Bit Of Everything

Isn't it tiring to organize your home especially if you have nowhere to put your stuff in? If that's your predicament, look first if you are really out of storage or you just own a lot of stuff.

Now, if you have a lot of stuff that they may end up looking for books like this, then you have to sort it out and see if you have a lot of stuff which you all need or you have a lot of stuff that you might not need at all.

If you deem all of your stuffs useful, then, you really are out of storage space. You might want to spend a bit of your cash for a new drawer or something where you can put some of your stuff in. I daresay that it is more important than figuring out what would be your Valentines Day activities for this year.

Feng Shui For Kids

I know that some people get this idea about Feng Shui that it only applies to large establishments. After all , we have this notion that Feng Shui is for luck. Actually, if you have read my earlier post, you would see that it is more than that.

In fact, Feng Shui can be used to decorate a child's bedroom; that is according to Certified Feng Shui Practitioner Dr. Katherine Grace Morris as reported by Rental Decorating Digest.

According to Dr. Morris: "To balance a child's life, I'd first look at what is in his or her room and what is going on in the child's life. The room and the child are part of a system, so they need to be examined together. Does he have trouble focusing? I would then make the bedroom especially soothing, with soft fabrics, sounds of nature and task-specific lighting."

"A child needs rest, just as adults do, so I would moderate the stimulation level of the room so that it is sleep-conducive when bed-time rolls around. Very bright colors should be avoided for this reason. Having storage places or bins to put away toys and crafts when play time is over helps signal the brain it's time for sleep," she continued.
